NATIONAL PATRIOTS BELL TOWER
Another highlight of the Chapel is the National Patriots Bell Tower, which houses a traditional 58-bell carillon that serenades visitors the park during the summer months.
Located directly behind the Chapel in a historic log cabin, the Cabin Shop specializes in unique Revolutionary and Colonial-themed souvenirs, gift baskets, artwork, fine pewter, Byer’s Choice caroler figurines, and homemade baked goods and candies. For the kids, we offer special Colonial toys, books, and other fun and memorable items.
Drop by for a hearty lunch or a quick snack, get to know our volunteer staff, and don’t pass up a piece of our delicious shoo-fly cake.
